    Google’s African Wind

    Why Google Cares about Wind Power in Africa; Millions of people are coming online, and that requires (renewable) energy

    Daniel Cusick, October 12, 2016 (Scientific American)

    “Google Inc.’s investment in Kenya’s Lake Turkana Wind Power Project is its largest on the African continent to date…The California internet giant has shown a growing interest in sub-Saharan Africa since…[its] $12 million investment in the Jasper Solar Power Project in South Africa’s Northern Cape Province…The 96-megawatt photovoltaic project, completed in 2014, was built by U.S.-based SolarReserve…[The Lake Turkana deal] calls for Google to acquire 12.5 percent of the nearly $700 million project from Vestas Wind Systems A/S of Denmark after the wind farm is completed next year…The ownership group includes lead developers Aldwych International Ltd. of Great Britain and KP&P Africa BV of the Netherlands, with additional financial support from international development funds in Norway, Finland and Denmark…Google has committed more than $2.5 billion to 22 renewable energy projects around the world, mostly through power purchase agreements and direct ownership of wind and solar farms…By purchasing a multimillion-dollar stake in the Lake Turkana project, Google will become the first U.S. firm to invest in a major sub-Saharan wind energy project (General Electric Co. has committed to provide turbines to at least one other Kenyan wind farm still in the planning phases)…[Experts believe Africa’s fast-growing clean energy market] could become one of the world’s strongest by the mid-21st century…” click here for more
